Wow, that's quite a move! Welcome to Basel
I had a friend from San Francisco but she only lasted a year...
Great to hear your loving it! Aglaya, is that by any chance a Greek name?

Quite a common one these days, given certain company integration stuff over the last year or three.

Welcome, Agalya. I guess your other half's working not a million miles from here, so maybe we'll meet one day

Re: Just moved from San Francisco to Basel:)

Welcome to Switzerland! Made a similar move from SF to Lucerne about 1.5 years ago. Although I am originally from around here I still feel like it takes a long time to getting used to life here. Slowly but steadily it starts to feel like home again. Switzerland has a lot to offer. I especially like the REAL summer here

Hello Aglaya

My name is Efthalia (Greek/Canadian) so that's why I assumed yours is too
